Overview

For the player who requires a very free "blow" in a Bb trumpet and big feel, this is the largest instrument currently built by the Schilke Company. It is characterized by a uniform resonance in all registers. The X4 holds a special place in the history and design of Schilke trumpets. Introduced in 1975, the X4L is an extra large bore horn with a large bell and large valve casing. The X4L is big! The L in the model name references the tunable bell.

Detachable Tuning Bells are available on almost all Schilke custom-built trumpets. The advantage of a trumpet that tunes from the bell is that it moves the "gap" inherent when tuning at the main tuning slide farther away from the mouthpiece receiver. In general, this varies the resistance or feel of the instrument and can open or "free up" the "blow" of the trumpet especially in the upper register.

It is believed that the instrument plays better in tune through the whole working range of the instrument when tuning from the bell. There is less bell bracing so the player generally feels a quicker response because the bell is free to resonate however, the instrument is more fragile because of the lack of bell braces. With a tuning bell instrument, the player has the option to change bells of various tapers and materials to alter the resistance and sound color of the instrument.
